PAT Testing Regulations (BS7671) & City and Guilds 2377 qualifications
We are now offering a low cost route to gaining the recognised City and Guilds 2377 award for PAT testing. PAT is the acronym for Portable Appliance Testing, or the safety testing of electrical devices that are, typically, plugged-into mains, or equivalent, electrical sockets. Although this is now well-known as PAT testing, the official name for this is 'In-service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment', and is based on the IEE Code of Practice for In-service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment.
PAT Testing is ideal for people who have a basic understanding of electrical theory, and a thorough and responsible approach to testing. It is an activity designed to ensure electrical safety and as such should be done by trained and competent people - see our dedicated web page for more information and special offers.
17th Edition IEE Wiring Regulations (BS7671) - City and Guilds 2382 qualification
Lucid is a well-respected City and Guilds approved assessment centre. As a result we have agreed to offer some City and Guilds qualifications on an exam- only basis as a service to our clients. One such qualification is the City and Guilds 2382 award otherwise known as the '17th edition' in reference to it being an examination of the candidate's knowledge of the BS 7671:2008 17th Edition IEE Wiring Regulations.
For holders of the current City and Guilds 2381 (16th edition) qualification, City and Guilds did provide a simpler upgrade path to full 17th Edition award and qualification. This update route is no longer available.
